My dad's feet get cold, and his circulation's not so great, so I wanted to knit him some thick warm socks to wear around the house.These are sumptuous, supremely cozy, and gorgeous, especially when knit in a luxurious alpaca/merino tweedy blend.

Options abound: you can knit these in a single color or do a contrasting color for the heel flap and toe; you can knit the cabled heart heel flaps or plain heel flaps, either in a single or contrasting color. Despite all the details (mirrored cables, honeycomb cables, ribbed gussets, patterned heel flap) these knit up amazingly fast.

Cuff down. Sizing is for men's medium, to fit men's size 9-10. Make socks longer or shorter as needed.



Color used in the sample is no longer available; we have made a similar color suggestion in the yarn calculator below.


Needles:

Size 5 (3.75mm): DPNs, 2 circulars, or 32" circular for Magic Loop
